2012 NBA Draft Lottery Results: Detroit Pistons Will Pick No. 9 Overall

The Detroit Pistons entered the 2012 NBA Draft Lottery on Wednesday night with the ninth best odds in the lottery out of 14 teams due to finishing with the ninth worst record during the regular season. As a result, they had a 6.1-percent chance of landing a top three pick in the draft and only a 1.7-percent chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick. Only one team in the history of the lottery has moved up into the top three from the No. 9 spot.

The number combinations didn't hit for the Pistons to move up, unfortunately, and they will pick where they had the best odds -- No. 9 overall.

Before the lottery took place, DraftExpress' latest mock draft had the Pistons going with John Henson with that No. 9 pick.
